Developing Skills You Can Use Outside the Military

The military gives every service member the opportunity to enter with virtually no skills and leave with an array of skills needed in the civilian job market. Some job-related skills are easily converted to civilian terms - military police become law enforcement officers, for example. Other skills, such as leadership and discipline, are also highly prized by civilian companies. Your military career will give you the chance to explore job opportunities and develop your own personal skill set. Knowing what skills to pursue and then developing them will help guide your career decisions while you’re in the military. It will also make you more marketable when you decide to pursue a career outside the service.

Frequent relocation, separation from family and friends, the stresses of deployment and a steady paycheck from Uncle Sam can make military households an attractive target for scam artists. That’s why the Department of Defense, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Office of Service Member Affairs, and Military Saves have joined to sponsor Military Consumer — a campaign to empower military and veteran communities with tips and tools to be informed consumers.

Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to spend some of your free time. When you volunteer, you give your time to a cause that needs your help. It’s an opportunity to feel good about yourself, learn about an organization you may be interested in, meet new people, and help a cause you believe in. It also looks good on a college application! If you don’t know how to go about getting started with volunteering, check out the information below.

The Military Extension Internship Program – A Chance to Learn and Grow | DoDLive

Graduating from college and obtaining your first job is an exciting milestone. I remember that time in my life, and I also remember how challenging it was searching for that first paid position. It seemed everyone wanted to know what experience I had, and, as a recent graduate, I didn’t have much. Having experience in your field of interest when you graduate is a definite benefit, which is why I want to tell you about the Military Extension Internship Program.

Programs for Military Youth and Teens

For many military parents, finding a safe and fun environment for their school-age children is a priority. The military’s youth and teen programs help fill the gap in a family’s care needs during summer break, holidays, and before-and after-school hours. Programs vary by service branch and installation, but most installations have a program for school-age children, as well as a youth center with organized activities.
